I promise,” Nachituti replied. ” Nachituti did not know how to verify this old man’s words since her brother Nkuba was always in his palace, sitting on his mat. Then one day there was a party in the palace with much drinking. While her brother was drunk, Nachituti looked under the mat and there she found the skin of her son. Upon ﬁnding the skin, she decided to go to Mwata Kazembe, who she knew to be a ﬁerce warrior. At that time there was little water, so Nachituti could walk from Chisenga to Kasankila.
52 It seems likely that the role of the owners increased through the nineteenth century as the inﬂuence of eastern Lunda conquerors and aristocrats declined, at least in matters concerning land and resource management. As the authority of the kingship was challenged, the Kazembes relied on local rulers rather than aristocratic appointments. This gave decentralized rulers signiﬁcant agency vis-à-vis the central kingdom. In the nineteenth century, the owners of the land and lagoons asserted their relationship to the land, to their clan identities, and to a set of ostensibly pre-Lunda political institutions and oral traditions.
Oral traditions are palimpsests that incorporated the views of past generations and superimposed them in new versions. 28 In the early nineteenth century the Kazembe Kingdom was at its most powerful. The testimony of several Portuguese travelers and traders describe the kingdom, with its western and eastern peripheries stretching for at least one hundred miles in either direction, as the most signiﬁcant and centralized state in the eastern portion of south central Africa. 29 Political control in the peripheries was facilitated by the distribution of Lunda insignia, lineage power brokering, and the collection of tribute.
